  • AUD/USD extends sell-off, trades 0.16% lower on the day at 0.7549 levels.
     
  • The pair is attempting breach of 100W SMA at 0.7551. Next major support lies at 0.7535 (trendline).
     
  • Break below 0.7535 could see weakness till 0.75 and the 0.7419 levels.
     
  • Break above 50W SMA at 0.7662 finds next major resistance at 200-DMA at 0.7690. Further upside on break above.
